Accreditation Status Show Cause Directive

Summary of Most Recent Accreditation Decision

On January 20, 2023, the Commission met to review and evaluate the status of Aspen University’s teach-out of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing Pre-licensure (BSN) program, the institution’s position with respect to the Arizona Board of Nursing (AZ-BON) and the Arizona Board of Private Post-secondary Education (AZPPSE), and the institution’s ongoing compliance with DEAC accreditation standards.  

The Commission expressed concern with respect to AU’s ongoing compliance with DEAC Accreditation Standards III.D., V.A., X.B., XI.E., and DEAC Procedures under Part Two, Section XVII.E.  The Commission therefore voted to direct AU to show cause as to why its accreditation should not be withdrawn and to require AU to undergo a special visit by a team of DEAC evaluators. More information is available on DEAC’s Institutions on Show Cause web page under Public Notices.

On September 5, 2023, the Commission met to review Aspen University's financial position and voted to expand the scope of its show cause directive to address Aspen University's compliance with Standard XI, Financial Responsibility.

 AU is required to provide DEAC with a Teach Out Plan and Teach Out Agreement in accordance with Section XXI.C, Processes and Procedures, DEAC Accreditation Handbook.
